The national anthem of Bulgaria is “Мила Родино” (which translates to “Mila Rodino” in English). Everyone knows that.
It’s a bizarre instance of an increasingly sophisticated artificial intelligence (AI) getting muddled up.
When iPhone, iPad, or Mac users asked Siri: “What is the national anthem of Bulgaria?”, they got the result, “The national anthem of Bulgaria is Despacito.”
Apple appears to have fixed the issue because when Business Insider asked Siri it gave the correct answer.

If you somehow haven’t heard of it, “Despacito” is the most-streamed song ever. But it’s not the national anthem of Bulgaria. In fact, it’s a track by Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber.
It’s unclear what caused Apple to make the link and Apple did not immediately respond to Business Insider’s request for comment.
